  • [ VERSE 1: Mike G ]
  • Remedies for house parties stayed simple and plain
  • Little wine, little music, little Mary Jane
  • Gotta keep the lights dim, so when the people walk in
  • The vibe stays nice and mellow, everybody fits in
  • And everybody hey and ho, are gettin they groove on
  • The record only stops when the lights came on
  • Then they went back off, we continued to groove
  • Then somebody grabbed the mic like they had somethin to prove
  • It was just the spirit got em, it wouldn't let loose
  • There right before our eyes hip-hop was produced
  • The fire kept on burnin like a doggie in heat
  • You couldn't help to feel the flavor as you walked through the streets
  • Everybody had a crew on every block for blocks
  • This seemed to be insurance that the beat won't stop
  • So one day shots ring and it was no one to blame
  • All you thought was would it ever all be the same
  • But if you got the love, baby, won't a damn thing change
  • As long as you remember it always remains
  • [ CHORUS: The Holmes Brothers ]
  • I remember
  • When we used to play shoot-em-up, bang-bang
  • I remember
  • When we used to play shoot-em-up, bang-bang
  • MC's and DJ's (2x)
  • [ VERSE 2: Afrika Baby Bam ]
  • Block parties jam-packed, the first time I heard rap
  • And deejays spinnin breakbeats back
  • These were the last good days of the ghetto
  • It wasn't all about bein jiggy, so save that rap for Jell-O
  • Down on my knees in the street playin skelly
  • Rushin upstairs to see _Graffiti Rock_ on the telly
  • With one eye on the beats droppin
  • I knew that one day would come when I'd be on the mic rockin
  • Every day after school practisin
  • I mixed blues smarts with street smarts, and then started battle rappin
  • But for me it wasn't happenin
  • So I changed up my style, to the ladies been mackin
  • I wrote a rhyme about 'Roxanne, Roxanne'
  • I used to bust it out when I went to a jam
  • My mother read the dirty rap
  • She said, "You ain't gon' go too far expressin yourself like that
  • Disrespectin black women
  • And what's gon' happen when you turn around and try to have your own children?"
  • So I changed up my style once again
  • So me and my moms could still be friends
  • My daddy wasn't buggin out so far
  • Watchin me pretend to be another rap star
  • Through my eyes he saw a child changin
  • Growin up to be a man and leave behind the shootin, bangin
  • [ CHORUS ]
  • [ VERSE 3: Afrika Baby Bam ]
  • Now this one goes out to the ones who set it off
  • And all the pioneers that made it what it was
  • Cause we been doin this for 25 years long
  • So we gotta represent and keep hip-hop strong
  • JBeez, we on a plateau, ain't nothin stoppin us
  • Will with the spirit of God, now watch it jump in us
  • Cause when you cut the roots off the family tree
  • All you leave behind is the sweet memory
  • Right from the start, we did it in the park
  • It wasn't for the money, and it came from the heart
  • But in these days and times, when rappers write rhymes
  • All we think about is signin on the dotted line
  • Me, I been thinkin about the way it used to be
  • When before you was a rapper, you became an MC
  • I'm proud of my heritage, and glad that we made it
  • I still bust rhymes without bein player-hated
  • Standin on the same stage, rockin with the JBeez
  • Was a dream come true for a brother like me
  • Before rap was consumed, and hip-hop was doomed
  • I was bangin on tables, rhymin in the lunchroom
  • I used to walk the street with my ghetto blaster
  • My brothers on the block was startin Zulu chapters
  • You know what I'm talkin about if you go way back
  • And yo, big ups to all my sisters, in the name of rap
  • Cause when it comes to hip-hop, you know you gotta keep it true
  • Take from the old, mix it with the new
  • I used to go by the name of MC Shazaam
  • But now you know me as Afrika Baby Bam
  • [ CHORUS ]
